What a cool event! I have to see if I can make it to one of the Massachusetts dates because I’ll be up there at that time.
This is an awesome event. Apparently, the tour will be in Houston sometime in October. Looking forward to it.
I stumbled upon this site as I was in the process of doing some online research. Wouldn’t I love to be a fly on the wall of that bus.
